The Empire of Accipitridia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, anti-smoking policies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 465 million Accipitrids are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konopolis. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Accipitridian economy, worth 47.5 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 102,163 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Accipitridia's national animal is the Red Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Accipitridia is ranked 80,216th in the world and 5,259th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 43.32 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
